Brian Foster busted out the 2018 FitBikeCo BF22 on his Instagram today and shared some of his thoughts on the bike after spending the day shredding it.
I can see taller riders and older dudes that don’t get out as much as they used to but still want to cut loose really being into this. It is super comfortable and a little more forgiving than a traditional 20 inch.
Sounds good to me.
Now, let’s check him out shreddin’ it:
A few months back, Brian Foster (BF) let the world know (via Instagram) that he had been dabbling with 22″ wheels.
According to BF, a 22″ S&M ATF had shown up at his door (courtesy of his sponsor, Chris Moeller). Moeller wanted him to try it out.
What did the Blue Falcon (BF) think?
According to BF:
I definitely see the appeal. It rides better at speed and is more stable when landing flat. This stability comes at a cost as it is not as nimble as a 20″. I think a 22″ makes sense for trails and large transitions.
But that wasn’t all.
In addition to this pic of BF shredding said 22…
BF let the news drop that:
This fall, a 22″ @fitbikeco complete will be released and should raise the stoke for the generation of shredders that want to stay connected with riding.
That statement sent the world’s BMX keyboard jockeys a typing.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait until fall to get a sneak peek. Below is a first look at the BF22 (My apologies for the awkward cropping).
Not a lot of details at this point but with its long-ish looking top tube, top load stem and big-ish bars…it looks like it’s probably going be a good choice for the lanky set.
No word yet on an official release date or price point.
